Picture of the productSecret Shop Weapons
Jewelers have a wealth of options when choosing the tools they'll use for their creations, but everyone has a favorite tool with which they would never part, a "secret shop weapon." This book pulls back the curtain and reveals the "weapons" of nearly three dozen jewelers, from renowned experts to up-and-comers who are just beginning to make their marks. Secret Shop Weapons presents a full range of "must have" tools and equipment, from high-tech CAD programs and microscopes to such basics as gravers and miter-cutting jigs. Whatever the tool, jewelers share why their favorite weapons are so special and how they use them.
 
Also included in this 160-page, full-color book are step-by-step projects featuring several of these weapons. In addition, readers will have access to exclusive online videos so that they can witness these tools in action. Prime Sponsor: Rio Grande.
